More Info On The Trumpchi E-jet Of Transformers: Age Of Extinction
Posted by News Fetcher on September 13 '13 at 11:45 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
On to more serious news from Transformers: Age Of Extinction. According to sources close to Guangzhou Automobile Group, the Trumpchi E-jet is set to appear on Transformers 4.

We previously received spy photos of the vehicle being filmed and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura mentioning it but this is the first official confirmation of the Trumpchi E-jet’s role on Transformers: Age Of Extinction.

"Product placements with "Transformers" would boost the profile of GAC's car brands both at home and abroad," said one of those close to the carmaker, which has local joint ventures with Fiat SpA, Honda Motor Co Ltd, Toyota Motor Corp and Mitsubishi Motors Corp.

Neither source wanted to be named due to confidentiality agreements they signed in connection with the upcoming film. A spokesperson for Paramount Pictures, the movie's distributor, said the company wouldn't confirm specific brands until nearer the release date. Paramount's local partner, China Movie Channel, declined to comment.

It wasn't clear if the Trumpchi E-jet would be cast as an heroic 'Autobot' or evil 'Decepticon' - humanoid robots that turn into familiar machines and mechanical objects - or have a more limited non-transforming, drive-on role.

One of those close to GAC said the firm wouldn't want the E-jet to be cast in an evil role. Ultimately, casting will be down to the movie's director Michael Bay.

Comedian TJ Miller has just wrapped up Transformers 4 and he went over to the Breakfast Television to talk about it.

Mr. Miller talked about how fit actor Mark Wahlberg is and how he is the opposite. TJ Miller also confirmed the name of his role as Lucas. The actor also said Mark Wahlberg told him that his hair smells nice (this is a strange strange interview. people).

Super Fire Convoy Reissue - Not Getting Made
Posted by News Fetcher on September 13 '13 at 02:00 PM
By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
A while back, Big Bad Toy Store put up a pre-order for a Super Fire Convoy Reissue (Japanese version of the 2001 Robots In Disguise Optimus Prime). Fans of the line rejoiced as Car Robots and RID have repeatedly gotten the shaft in Hasbro and Takara's Classics/Reissue treatment. However, I am sad to report, it may have just been a pre-emptive move on their part to ensure pre-orders based on rumors coming out of the Asian market. Forum members are getting this in their inboxes (including me):
Quote:
Hello,

The purpose of this message is to inform you that we unfortunately will not be able to fulfill your preorder for product TAK11741 C-001 Super Fire Convoy - 2014 Reissue - Preliminary Preorder. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation has caused. We have recently been informed that Takara will not be producing this product, which is why we are unable to fulfill our preorders. Due to this matter, all remaining preorders have been cancelled accordingly.

Thank you for your understanding during this matter and have a wonderful day!

Sincerely,

BBTS Customer Care
Hopefully one day RID will get some proper reissue love, but today doesn't look like the day.

If you want to check out what could have been, head on over to TFW2005's side project, a labor of love, RIDForever.info, one of the web's most complete archives of Car Robots and Robots In Disguise information. The C-001 Fire Convoy gallery is here.

Transformers Figure Subscription Service 2.0 Thrustinator Mock-up Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on September 13 '13 at 09:30 AM
By StayingInTheBox from TFW2005:
Coming off of yesterday's Club news, we now have our first look at the Subscription Service 2.0 Thrustinator!

The Transformers Collectors Club posted the mock-up of Beast Wars Thrustinator earlier today on their website.

Thrustinator, a hybrid of Beast Wars Waspinator and his Beast Machines incarnation, Thrust, is a retooled Beast Wars Second Dirgegun with a new head. Dirgegun's mold has never been made available outside of Japan officially so this is the first international release for this one. In a cool move, the organic portions are patterned like Waspinator, and the mechanical ones like Thrust.

Mark Wahlberg Interview - Transformers: Age Of Extinction Filming Nearly Over
Posted by News Fetcher on September 11 '13 at 12:00 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
It's just less than 2 weeks for Transformers: Age Of Extinction principle photography to end. Actor Mark Wahlberg mentioned to MTV that they are in the "Home Stretch" as Day 70 of 96 closes.

"My kids just did a cameo, just scared people in the street looking up, but they did a great job. I was so nervous because Michael doesn't have time for bad performances," he said. "You have to understand; you're shooting a $300 million movie. You've got a lot going on. He's got five, six takes. If you ain't got it, you're done. I didn't want to see my kids get clipped. They were excited about, but they started to get mad at me because I'm trying to over-direct them. It went great."

The actor also… kind of… confirmed The Dinobots. He wasn't quite ready to talk openly about the secret though.
"You can't say that, dude. Did you leak it? Did you leak it? You leaked it," he said. "Somebody leaked it, dude. Somebody was on the set leaked it, and it is not OK. It's not cool."

You can check out the video of the interview at MTV.
